If a book is advertised as “vastly entertaining feast of storytelling”, I not only get pimples due to this vast vastness of vastidity [sic! ], but my expectations of course are high and I’m easily disappointed as you might have figured out by now. So, we do have a page turner, considering the chapters never exceed three pages; the problem is that I find it hard to turn them with any excitement at all and therefore you just have to see yourself and pass me a drink! PS: I do like the title. A lot.
Join the book club anytime (you don’t need to sign anywhere, not to worry!), we are always glad to make new acquaintances & you can buy the book in the shoppe with a 10% discount!

British Rail Films
For our June Open Meeting the Deutsch-Britische-Gesellschaft Dresden e.V.,
invites you to come with them on a “Journey by British Transportation Films”.
In 1948 the newly nationalized British Rail founded British Transportation Film. For over thirty years critically acclaimed directors would produce documentaries, promote tourism and show what the railways did for Britain. Today these films offer are rare glimpse into the past – and look far beyond the railways themselves. After a short introduction we will have a look at some of these short films, ranging from farms on the move to fun excursions to the capital, London.
Entry is free, all are welcome!
